Our 2020 Annual Ohio Gourd Show is Canceled

For Gourd Growers and Gourd Artists

Dear Friends. 2020 has been an extraordinary year. Many people’s lives have been affected by COVID-19 and many events have been canceled. So with heavy hearts, but with the safety of all in mind, the Ohio Gourd Society has decided to cancel our October 2020 show. This decision was made foremost to protect the health and safety of our vendors, supporters, workshop instructors, volunteers, and board members who work year after year to make this remarkable show happen. We are hopeful that in 2021, we can return to normal and hold all of the OGS events that are so instrumental in supporting the gourd community. To all, we wish you good health and good gourding.
